Key Financial Metrics:

  • Revenue grew to $4.33 million in Q4'23, up 20% from $3.61 million in Q4'22, and up 5% sequentially from Q3'23. Revenue in Fiscal 2023 grew to $16.40 million, up 28% from $12.84 million in Fiscal 2022. The increases are due to revenue growth from new customer acquisition as well as the relative strength of the U.S. dollar to Canadian dollar.
  • The Company completed December 31, 2023 with $18.0 million of software ARR and $18.1 million of Total ARR, growing 22% and 23% over December 31, 2022, respectively. However, this reflects a significant slowdown in our rate of ARR growth, generating just $0.6 million of Software ARR from new and existing customers in the three months ended December 31, 2023, down 45% from the $1.1 million in the three month period ended December 31, 2022 and a 43% sequential decline from $1.1 million in the three month period ended September 30, 2023.
  • Gross margins remained strong at 83% ($3.61 million) in Q4'23 compared to 80% ($2.88 million) in Q4'22 and 81% ($3.34 million) in Q3'23. Gross Margins in Fiscal 2023 of 81% ($13.33 million), remained steady from 81% ($10.43 million) in Fiscal 2022.
  • Incurred Adjusted Operating Costs of $4.44 million in Q4'23, a 14% decrease from $5.17 million in Q4'22, and remained steady from $4.46 million incurred in Q3'23. Adjusted operating costs in Fiscal 2023 were $19.18 million, a 5% decrease from $20.11 million in Fiscal 2022.
  • Reported a Q4'23 Adjusted EBITDA loss of $0.83 million, an improvement of 64% from $2.30 million in Q4'22, and an improvement of 26% sequentially from Q3'23. EBITDA loss in Fiscal 2023 was $5.84 million, a decrease of 40% from $9.69 million in Fiscal 2022. The decrease in Adjusted EBITDA loss is evidence of the Company's plan to reduce Adjusted Operating Costs while growing Revenue in line with the Company's long-term strategy.
  • Ended Fiscal 2023 with modified working capital (excluding contract acquisition assets, deferred revenue, lease liabilities and debt) of $0.78 million (December 2022: $2.31 million), total lease liabilities and debt of $3.77 million (Fiscal 2022: total lease liabilities and debt of $1.07 million). For the year ended December 31, 2023, the Company increased $3.00 million of bank indebtedness, collected proceeds of $3.50 million from a private placement and increased its Revolving Credit Facility to $9.00 million, with $3.46 million drawn.

1 Adjusted Operating Costs, Adjusted EBITDA Loss, and Modified Working Capital are non-IFRS measures. See "Non-IFRS Measures" section of the Company's MD&A for further discussion, the "Results of Operations" section and the "Liquidity and Capital Resources" section of the MD&A for reconciliation to the most directly comparable IFRS measure. Adjusted Operating Costs includes Sales and Marketing, Research and Development, and General and Administrative expenses, and excludes share-based compensation, depreciation, and certain non-recurring expenses. The Company considers Restructuring Costs, as defined in the Company's MD&A, to be non-recurring in nature and not indicative of continuing operations. We use this metric as a supplemental measure to review and assess operating performance and assess our ability to generate cash flow. Management believes Adjusted EBITDA Loss provides a meaningful measure for assessment of Company performance as it removes non-cash and non-operating expenses such as financing costs, and non-recurring expenses. Modified Working Capital is a non-IFRS measure that represents current assets less current liabilities and adjusted to exclude contract acquisition assets, deferred revenue, lease liabilities and debt. We use this metric as a supplemental measure to assess financial sustainability and sufficient liquidity to preserve the Company's capacity to continue operating, in providing benefits to our stakeholders and in providing an adequate return on investment to our shareholders by selling our services at a price commensurate with the level of operating risk assumed by the Company.
2Annual Recurring Revenue (ARR) provides an indication of future revenue and billings from customers as of the reporting date. ARR represents the sum of the annualized recurring software and managed service fees from existing customer contracts or commitments as of the reporting period end date, and as such management believes ARR to be a meaningful measure for assessment of Company performance. ARR is recorded as deferred revenue when it is invoiced and is recognized in revenue evenly on a monthly basis over the contract term at the US dollar exchange rate in effect at the time of invoicing. Substantially all of the Company's ARR is denominated in USD. The average US dollar exchange rate of ARR was C$1.3437 at December 31, 2023 and C$1.3141 at December 31, 2022.
